According to your standards, every form of media, in this case videogames, should document events and not portray a vision of them by the ones who created them! Most forms of media inspired in any, either current, or historic event, take something called artistic freedom. Some aim for realism, other take a turn for fantasy, but either way they always end up giving the artists' or creators' view on the subject; it could be sardonic, satiric or serious, but it is always left as a prerogative of those who made them. War and crime movies and TV shows have done this since their inception. Many have said they glorify questionable actions, other that they make light of them, but in the end that just opens the gates to even more interpretations, and not the contrary, limiting what the artists and creators should and should not do.
Let's take GTA:SA for example. Gang violence in L.A. during the late 80's and the 90's surely was tragic, and left many victims. It was a relatively recent event. Was it faithfully portrayed by the game? No it wasn't, but it didn't matter, because no one was expecting a freaking playable documentary on gang violence! The creators' artistic freedom is what it made it great! The colorful characters played a role not in educating you on something, but on provide an entertaining critique and satire of those events.
The cartel wars in Mexico are sure tragic, but even in media produced by Mexicans themselves they are often romanticized or even glorified. I am Latin American, and I can tell you there are freaking soap operas based on drug lords and their feats.
I do not really see how the things you point out in the video are racist. Gang and drug violence in L.A. is carried away mostly by black and Hispanic people, and the cartels are pretty much entirely Mexican! You are in denial and contradicting your claims for realism if you want criminals from other races thrown in there for no reason! I mean how ridiculuos would be if just for the sake of adding diversity, Appalachian militias and Yakuza are thrown in there fighting along the cartels in Mexican towns. I, as an Ecuadorian, wouldn't mind shooting only Ecuadorian criminals in a game set in my country!
I am not defending the game, but I think your critique is entirely based on your sociopolitical views and your own need for political correctness in media. You should probably be better off sticking to documentaries and educational games.
